About "Thirties Belly Dancer"

This painting is of a late thirties belly dancer entertaining tourists. She is a mother of two although it does not show. The background of the painting was created though my own inspiration. This panting emphasizes technique, flow and perspective more than my usual works. The strong contrasts are not as evident. However by this time I had deeply established my think layer within layer technique. This is an acrylic work.

About Vanessa

For me to enjoy painting something it needed to show a part of that person’s life, a part of their soul. As such my themes were often of the Middle East and or more rural areas where people work hard and live difficult lives. The lives of these people come out in the work so much more than most western societies. However I didn’t limit my work only to them. I would search for a picture to paint for a quite a while for each painting trying to find the picture that would jump out at me and tell me to paint it. After a number of oil pastel paintings I finally moved onto acrylic paint. The acrylic paint was a good medium for me and I eventually developed my own style where I would paint quite thickly and mix the paints on the canvas as I worked. Similar in technique to oil paints.
